Shiba Inu Yarn
I was recently contacted by a local person seeking a knitter to knit a scarf out of Shiba Inu fiber that she had saved from her own dogs and had spun. I was surprised by this request but delighted to do it since I started out my spinning career spinning Bouvier des Fladres fiber. It is special to have a keep sake from your beloved dogs. Although not practical since most dog hair has a degree of harshness to it (OK I am a bit of a softness snob since I exclusively spin angora from my rabbits) a dog hair scarf is quite a conversation piece.
